Though it’s not quite finished here, I have completed Tree Trimmer, the sixth of my New Landscape Paintings. If you count more than six of them posted on this blog, that’s because one or two of the earlier ones didn’t make the cut. So far these are all acrylic on paper, using Blick and Liquitex paints from large, relatively cheap tubes. The packaging says they’re lightfast but the low pigment/binder ratio does get difficult (eg, cadmium orange and raw sienna both require double coats to show up well, even on white paper). After this I may upgrade to “artist-grade” paints.

The finished version of this painting is in my gallery.
